Addional information on Amanda F.(fannie) Rorex.
Recently found where Amanda Rorex applied for a Civil War pension Arkansas in the name of her first husband, John P. Smith for herself and her minor son - Robert F Smith. There was at least 2 children from this marriage - Lurana "Ada" and Robert Smith. Amanda married James A. Rorex in Colbert Co. Alabama in 1874.Amanda listed her self as A.F. Smith on the marriage license, F.A. Rorex(widow of James)and Amanda F. Rorrex (widow of James A.)1897-98 city directories in Little Rock, Arkanses.On the Little Rock 1930 Census, she is listed as A.F. Rorex,age 83, living with son Fred Rorex, age 43, at 2100 Cedar St. From Suzanne, we now know she died at the age of 87. Need maiden name of Amanda,she is thought to have been French and possibly born in Mobile Alabama.Also need help with any information/or leads on John P. and Robert F. Smith.Any other researchers out there? Thanks - Beverly
